Watch ALGS Winter Circuit playoffs and earn limited-time rewards from Twitch Drops

The four exclusive items for Mirage include a Legendary Metal Collector Banner Frame, Rare Number One Banner Pose, Rare Honorable Mention Badge, and Lifetime Wins Tracker. The upcoming Twitch drops for Apex Legends will be available for players on all platforms, including Nintendo Switch. However, the rewards will drop in a particular order. Also, the more ALGS action fans watch, the more drops they earn.

Watching the Winter Circuit Playoffs live for one hour will award the Lifetime Wins Tracker, while watching for two hours will award the Honorable Mention Badge. Meanwhile, the reward for watching the broadcast for three hours is the Number One Banner Pose. Finally, accumulating four hours of watch-time will unlock the ultimate reward, a legendary Metal Collector Banner Frame.

The rewards earned will become available in-game within 24 hours of the event. While receiving all four cosmetic items only requires four hours of watch-time, there are a few things to keep in mind to become entitled to the drops.
